The Real Housewives of New York is looking like it will be a feisty one next season. Now that we know (well, sort of) that Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin may be returning to Bravo, it looks like their famous feud will come with them, OKmagazine.com has learned.
Frankel is causing a bit of a hold up because she refuses to return if Jill is, an insider told RadarOnline.com.
“Bethenny hasn’t signed a deal with Bravo or the production company for Real Housewives of New York because she is refusing to come back if arch-enemy Jill Zarin returns,” the source told Radar. “For Bethenny to return to the show, she wants to move forward. Having Jill come back would just create more false drama in an attempt to recreate the past.”
But their flashback feud hasn’t rekindled—it’s just that SkinnyGirl mogul has moved on from the drama.
“It’s not that Bethenny has any hatred towards Jill, it’s simply she has moved on from all of that,” the source explained. “In fact, Bethenny has run in to Jill and her husband, Bobby, recently and the two have exchanged pleasantries.”
“Producers need to shake up the cast because the ratings have just plummeted,” a source told Radar.
